Selling to Design by NOT Designing to Sell by Jan Neiges
Selling to Design is a process that Jan Neiges, Chapter Officer of the Rocky Mountain Chapter has developed over the years to improve her time on task in cultivating a lead to a sale. She has utilized her 26 years of sales training to create a selling process that improved her closing ratio to 95% and earns her a design fee after spending only 2 hours with a lead. 

Jan will explain her process and share documents she uses with her clients to help you improve your time on task and increase your closing ratio resulting in more income.

Where: Bath and Granite 4 Less, 4755 E. 46th Ave. Denver CO 80216

Design Certification Program Improvements

The NKBA is proud to announce the following improvements to our design certification program. As an NKBA Chapter Officer, we want you to be aware of these improvements.
The NKBA recognizes the importance of staying current to meet the needs of the student member population, while addressing the concerns of our certified and non-certified professional members regarding the complexity of the certification process. Members of the Certification Task Force, Certification Test Board Committee, and Exam Development Subcommittee have worked together to determine the best methods  for streamlining the process for NKBA design certifications, by allowing students and  non-certified members better access to the NKBA Certification exams.
